Overview

The JR® Vibe SG E12 is the flagship 3D machine in the JR helicopter lineup. Designed around a reputation for quality, and built for the pilot who wants the ultimate in extreme 3D flight, JR revisited the drawing board. Not only does this machine reflect advances in electric power, it incorporates new ideas in efficiency and strength. To assure that goal, world F3C champion Hiroki Ito brought to the E12 significant improvements whose vision redefines what the top-tier requirement should be for a hard-core 3D helicopter.

Some of those improvements include a simpler frame design that’s not only lighter, but also stronger. Its all-new main gear is machined from a high-strength polymer material that’s 6mm thicker with helical teeth for superior strength and quieter operation. Built-in alignment pin locations make it possible to set up the helicopter perfectly without any guesswork or measuring. If you have the JR Sub-Trim Free (STF) adjustable metal horns for your servos then assembly is simplified even more. The all-new flybarless head block is now significantly more compact and uses a rigid collar instead of the traditional rubber damper to deliver instantaneous response to your input. In addition, the head is designed to be 19mm lower than previously to improve balance and load handling for pilots who demand running higher head speeds. A carbon tube is used for the tail rotor control pushrod to achieve unmatched tail rotor response. To increase yaw stability even further, metal tail blade grips are now a standard feature. All metal parts on a JR helicopter are diamond cut for a look that’s sharp as well as that signature JR perfect fit.

But what’s even more amazing is the price. JR innovation and quality has never been so affordable in a helicopter designed for the most aggressive 3D flying imaginable.
